    Remember that kid everyone ignored on Valentine`s Day? He remembers you
    Certificate: R
    Running Time: 96 mins
    Retail Price: $19.98
    Release Date:

    Revenge is sweet, just like a Valentine bonbon. At least, that is what a vengeful, Cupid-masked killer thinks. Be my Valentine...or else.

    Broken hearts and other mortal wounds await a cast of contemporary young stars when they play dating-scene veterans dying for love in this humor-laced, twist-filled thriller cleverly directed by Jamie Blanks (Urban Legend) and starring David Boreanaz (TV`s Angel), Denise Richards (The World Is Not Enough), Marley Shelton (Sugar & Spice), Katherine Heigl (TV`s Roswell) and more. Cards, candy and flowers are nice. But for fans of stalker-shocker terror, there`s nothing like a Valentine.

    Your Opinions and Comments

    7 / 10
    An ordinary "scare you out of your seat" movie. Nothing else. The movie`s plot is ok. A bit predictable, but ok, and there are only 2-3 real scares (the sudden sound of high pitched violins).
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the picture (and especially the flesh tones) looks very nice.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ordinary. The surrounds are used for the scares and during the party scene.
    The menus are still with sound.
    The extras include a commentary by the director, a short behind the scenes look and a horrible music video.
    Bottom line - yet another ordinary slasher with only a few good scares.
